METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 31, 1988 GAME:sappy Mets fan
December 23, 2009
On this day, I went to the game with my girlfriend at the time, Dave Magadan hit a foul ball into the Loge section behind home plate, the ball bounced around in front of me until it landed right in my hands. I was pumped! My first ball, though I acquired it in a very unimpressive fashion, ball rolling under the seats into my hands.
A little boy asked if he could see the ball, as he was looking at it, I thought how can I take the ball away from him? So I told the young lad to keep the ball.
Well my whole section I was seating in went crazy, thought I was the greatest. They started chatting to my girlfriend to "sleep with (me) tonight."
It was funny, a whole section of the stadium chatting for my girlfriend to do the right thing. That's why I'm a Mets fan. Never would that happen at Yankee Stadium.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
